Getting my rear in gear

Tuesday, December 29, 2009

Motivation experts say there are four phases to making change; pre-contemplation, contemplation, execution, and evaluation. Guess I'm phasing from contemplation to execution. Weight is something that's been a lifelong battle and it's a battle I'm tired of losing. I tire easily, feel depressed and lack confidence in my appearance. I'm a stress-induced emotional eater and this year has been traumatic in many ways. After months of neglecting my health, I'm ready to begin this battle to get down to my fighting weight.

Like many people, I know all about diets because I've tried them all--weight watchers, southbeach, etc. What I realize is that all of these plans offer good lessons, but if they don't help me sustain the changes I make, then they are temporary solutions to deeper problems.

I was elated when I found Sparkpeople, because I knew the blogging feature was something I'd want to use. Plus, the fact that its free and offers me a community of like-minded souls, accountability and a feeling of togetherness without having to succumb to weekly meetings in a room full of strangers.

Saturday, January 2nd, is D-day. I'm preparing by stocking up on frozen veggies, chicken and fish. I'm ready to do this damn, thing, lol! emoticon

    Way to make the commitment and write out your thoughts and plans for the upcoming year.
You totally can do this. One suggestion: make some small realistic goals that you can build on. Don't expect to change everything all at once. Progress, not perfection.
This upcoming year is yours!
